NAME
       mkcp - make a NILFS2 checkpoint

SYNOPSIS
       mkcp [options] [device]

DESCRIPTION
       mkcp is a utility for making a checkpoint or snapshot for the NILFS2
       file system found in device.  When device is omitted, it tries to find
       a NILFS2 file system from /proc/mounts.

       This command is valid only for mounted NILFS2 file systems, and will
       fail if the device has no active mounts.

OPTIONS
       -s, --snapshot
              Create a snapshot.

       -p, --print
              Print the checkpoint number when successfully created.

       -h, --help
              Display help message and exit.

       -V, --version
              Display version and exit.
